Rated 5 out of 5 by Winter Jacket. Love the jacket. Light weight yet warm. Great for packing in suitcase. January 14, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect winter coat This jacket is amazing. It fits true to size and the omni heat is amazing. I bought this jacket for a trip to Missouri and I stayed warm in 16 degree weather. The jacket isn't bulky like most jackets of this type and it complimented my small frame. I'm 5ft 5, 116lbs. I'm very happy with this purchase. January 5, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Jacket Ever! I bought the exact same jacket in another color a couple of years ago at a department store. I used it and loved it in both Arizona and Chicago in the dead of winter. It is a perfect fit, tapered at the waist, with a high collar which when zipped eliminates the wind, has long sleeves and thumbholes to keep wrists warm. Easy to zip up or down and both WARM WARM WARM and LIGHT LIGHT LIGHT. Great zippered pockets and hidden inside pocket. Cannot say enough...it is great! January 1, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket! My wife loves this jacket. The red is awesome and looks great. It has these little hand warmers with holes for thumbs, which I didn't realize and wife loved. Great gift idea for anyone... just a really nice looking, high quality product. December 30, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice Jacket I bought this jacket because I wanted a jacket that was light weight but still kept you warm and toasty. Needless to say this wasn't it. The jacket ran a little small. I wear a medium and bought a large. When I tried it on I had a long sleeved thermal shirt on and it was very tight on, no wiggle room. Went outside in 40 degree weather, no wind just cold and it didn't keep me warm even with a thermal shirt on. Would love to have kept it but sorry to say I had to return it. December 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket for cold weather activities. I actually purchased this jacket for my girlfriend. I have the Mighty Lite Box Quilt jacket and she wanted something similar for herself. The "Purple Dahlia" color was on sale for $40. This color is fairly accurate to the image on the site (incorrect image color is a common problem on the Columbia website). This jacket appears to fit her well and is fairly flattering. She doesn't think the OmniHeat works as well as I do, but she still likes to wear the jacket often. As with this and my own Mighty Lite, we both agree that lightweight OmniHeat jackets like this are best for outdoor activities- where you need an outer layer that is very lightweight, allows plenty of movement, and keeps you warm during a time that you are generating a decent amount of body heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket without all the poof!! I've bought 3 of these jackets. 2 for my daughter and 1 for a gift. We live in a cold climate , daughter attends collage so warmth is important without the bulkiness . Super light weight and the colors are awesome!! I prefer the mid length just for more coverage. December 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by In love The jacket is great. I run slightly cold all the time and this Omni Heat inner lining is wonderful. I have no complaints and have been kept nice a warm. Comfortable female form fitting November 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Investment I bought my first Mighty Lite jacket about 5 years ago for a summer trip to Switzerland. I needed something packable to put in my backpack on day hikes. This jacket was perfect: Packable, flattering and warm. I purchased my second jacket that winter in a snug size S to wear as a layer under my ski jacket. I wear my Mighty Lites to my kids' cross county and track meets, and to winter swim meets, as it keeps me warm from the car to the pool, and then easily smushes down into a seat cushion. It's perfect for walking the dog in fall through spring, and I also wear it indoors on chilly days, because it's so comfortable. My teenage daughter owns and loves the hooded version, and this year I'm considering purchasing the mid-length hooded jacket. I have washed and dried each of the jackets MANY times, and they still look great! I'm 5'5", 145 lbs & small-chested. The S fits snugly; the M fits very comfortably, with room for a thick sweater underneath. November 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome, but wrong color! I ordered this jacket in Camelia Red, but be warned, it is definitely more pink! It's a shame because I love the jacket, but am really not all about pink. Will be returning and re ordering in a different color. November 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome This is a great little jacket for almost all seasons if you are always cold like me! I wear this jacket a lot and can even wear it under another coat in the super cold weather. Here it goes down to -25C so layers are helpful. I love, love this mighty jacket and most the omni heat products I have purchased from Columbia. Highly recommend. November 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite mighty warm Bought this for my wife. It fits her figure attractively like it shouid You can actually feel yourself warming up when you don this jacket, the Omni insulation is amazing. Other design compliment was the comfort cuffs with thumb holes, that was apparently a big deal for her. Wears it all the time now, perfect Fall jacket for Eastern Canada October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 5th One!! Every closet should have a couple of these in your favorite colors. Great wind cuffs on your wrist, easy entry pockets, good length, and overall nice coat. The medium just fits but I like to have room for winter clothes underneath so I buy large and it is perfect. :) October 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice jacket, but a little big! As the title states, it's nice, but too big. I normally take an XS, but after reading other reviews about Columbia jackets running too small, I decided to get the S. Wish I got the XS. I'm about 5'4", 110 lbs. Other than that, it's not too thick, and is a nice style. October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering Shape Love the color and shape; I am post 65, so this fit gives me a young attitude! Comfort cuffs and thumb holes are a real plus for walking the dog. September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-to Jacket For several years I have owned two of these Mighty Lite III jackets and these are definitely my GO TO jacket for fall and spring. This spring my favorite purple (Columbia color Quill) jacket got a tear in the fabric right on the front so I need to replace that one. I ordered "Nightshade" which looked purple online but I have just received it and it looks more navy blue to me in person. I can see that there is a shimmer of purple but I not really what I had in mind. I am returning but will purchase another color. One thing I noticed was that the sleeves on the jacket I received seemed to be longer and fuller between the elbow and the wrist than my older jacket. Not really crazy about that. Hoping that will not be the case with the second one I order. September 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wanted to love.. I wanted to love this jacket. I love the omni heat feature, it is super light and packable. The sizing was off for me though. Super tight in the shoulders and hips, i could barely zip the medium. The large zipped but was too big everywhere else. So bummed! Totally recommend this jacket if you have the right body type! September 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Just got my jacket. Unfortunately I am writing this review without actually getting to use it yet. It is summer. I bought for next winter. Love how lightweight it is. Glad I read the reviews. Order one size up. Runs small. It fits perfect if you order up a size. Very comfortable. Wore it around the house as soon as I got it. Feels great. Now the true test will be when it gets cold. Cant wait. June 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Jacket I love this jacket. It's light weight and very warm. My mom has 1 and loves it too. I had to buy one and am so glad I did. I love the pink color. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by light and warm Great Jacket. It is very light weight and super warm. Another great product from Columbia. This is an excellent layer under a rain shell or stand alone jacket when the sun is out. It's very stylish too! April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful spring jacket Here in NW Montana, we have a long spring season, so an appropriate jacket is a must. I have worn it in temps from 25-50 degrees and been comfortable. The stormy blue color is a pleasant change from winter's dark colors. This jacket is snug in the waist and roomy in the shoulders. April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicely tailored and still feminine This jacket is very light and yet extremely warm. I have worn it a few times and am very comfortable in it. I am normally a size 8 and wear a small in other products, but chose large for this jacket are reading other reviews. I'm glad I did, it fits well, just a little loose which means I can wear a thicker mid layer when I am in ski country. Great buy, I am very please with it. March 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Jacket!! I read reviews about the jacket running small and in my case that's not true I wear a medium and bought a medium it fits perfect I'm 5'8" 115 pounds small chested with long a** "monkey" arms lol I also live in Maine and been freezing out today it's a whole 5 degrees and this jacket is keeping me toasty warm way warmer than my bulky down jacket I am in love thinking of buying another in black I got ruby red and it's not red red it's a pinkish coral color it pretty definitely recommend February 10, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I had high hopes for the warmth of this jacket but feel very let down. I cannot wear it below 35F without feeling chilly. Even with a cardigan underneath it isn't warm enough for too much below freezing. The quality and weight are fine but there is not enough warmth. January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved it It was thinner than I thought it would be but my daughter in law loved it. Perfect for her. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's mighty lite 3 Love this jacket! So many compliments! I am going to buy another one! The one I bought previous is a white. No heavy at all! December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Jacket I bought this to take with my on a trip to Iceland in May. I'm spending 8 days in Paris first so I have to pack for both climates. I won't have room to pack my regular Columbia convertible jacket. Super light, so warm and looks great too, I wear for casual nights out. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hate the cold-Love this jacket! I am not a fan of cold weather so was looking for a thin, light weight but warm jacket. I have longer arms and was concerned about the sleeve length but was pleased that they are the perfect length -no cold wrists. The Omni heat lining works great! Thinking of investing in the boots with omni heat lining as well. I highly recommend this product. Arrived quickly and just as described. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat I have this coat in black and absolutely love it. I ordered it in the purple dahlia color thinking it looked more maroon online, it is definitely purple. It is slightly shiny purple, so I am returning it. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingly warm. I live in the Front Range of Colorado. This jacket is so light but extremely warm. I have worn it in rain and snow (walking to and from my car and on my daily walk), and I am not chilled at all. The extended cuff with the hand warmer that has a thumb cut out is added warmth with or without gloves. It ran about a size small so I went with the medium instead of the small. November 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fit I tried this product on in the store and it fit perfect but the jacket had a stain on it with no others same size so i ordered it on the web but the jacket that came was way smaller than the one I tried in store :( I still want to find one but in store would be better than on line to verify fit November 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by so thin but so warm I love this jacket.my friend in Colorado recommended it .I loved it so muchI bought one ofr all of my girls for Christmas November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and cute! This jacket fits very well. I am 5' 9", 145 pounds and it is not usually easy for me to find jackets with sleeves long enough! So far it has been very warm, but lightweight enough to still move around in. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved it! I needed a lighter-weight coat that would be small enough that I could roll up and fit into my carry on luggage, yet warm enough that I would stay warm without having to layer a ton of clothes underneath, while stylish enough that I could wear this to a work function. This coat fit all of my criteria and more! It did everything it was designed to do and it sure kept me warm with the space blanket liner. The thumb holes helped keep my hands warm when I realized I forgot to pack gloves. I love this coat and I'm so happy to be able to make this part of my fall/early winter wardrobe! November 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Light and warm but tight It's light and warm and looks great with most tight pants, but it runs small. I'ma 34C, ordered a medium and have to suck my chest in when zipping up. There's only space for a thin base layer underneath, so I can't wear it to work over a business suit or over a warm sweater. Rated this a 3 because other companies don't charge shipping and covers refund shipping too. October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Little Jacket I was looking for something less bulky this year but still wanted to stay warm, so far so good. I like that all the pockets zip, it has Omni Heat, which you feel...means I don't have to bulk up on layers to stay warm, so I can actually move around freely. The fit is nice, and I receive lots of compliments when I am wearing it. Originally I had bought the large based on several reviews I read on different sites which all said it runs too small... this is not true, and I had to exchange it for the medium which fits perfect! this jacket is true to Canadian size, so go with that. October 20, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its okay. In Fargo ND it gets pretty chilly so this jacket may not have been the best choice. Though it kept the bite of the cold out I wasn't completely warm. I still like the jacket and will wear it this fall but I will be purchasing a different WINTER jacket soon. September 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product We like the materials that make this product, however what we liked the most was the fast delivery from the time we place the order on line, it was delivered next day!! Amazing! August 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zipper not for a liner Fantastic jacket. Light and very warm. Only recommend that Columbia make all jackets available to use as a liner for their waterproof shells. This zipper is small & not compatible May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun Jacket I love the blue color, bright and cheerful. This jacket is very lightweight but warmer than you'd think. Sleeves are long but that's okay with the inner wrist liners. May 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, meets my needs exactly I consider myself a true size 4, and struggle ordering clothing on line. In this case, the fit was perfect, and the jacket is performing exactly as I wished. I bought it to wear to the barn for riding; it is a light, but very warm spring/fall jacket that will fit nicely under my bulky winter coat for extra warmth during the winter. It fits well enough and is flexible enough that I can ride and work in it. Lovely product, definitely recommend it. April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite jacket III Fitted perfect with a little extra wear great buy!!! April 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased Alot thinner than I thought nevertheless I'm pleased with it as I will be wearing thin & thick long sleeve under it in my south dakota weather. Even thou Im a true size medium, I ordered a large due to reading other reviews stating it's a close fit....happy with my decision! Ground shipping took longer than I anticapted. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite go anywhere jacket I love this coat so much, that I replaced after I lost my original coat of same model at a conference. Things I love, 1. Great style, not bulky. 2. Omniheat 3. Thumb holes 4. Wash and hang dry overnight...ready in AM 5. Quality made ( should have listed #1) 6. The blue is pretty..original was black. Both nice colors. I love this coat. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jackets! I bought the longer version of this jacket 2 years ago up in NC and it's been my go to coat for everything! It's so light and well insulated which is such a great function duo and I love the fact that the sleeves are more closed so air doesn't blow up the sleeves keeping you warmer. I would recommend this jacket/coat for anyone anywhere because it is that versatile ;) The price in the long run is worth it :) March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket I'm a ski instructor and wear it under my jacket and sm toasty warm. Wear it by itself also and love it! March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lives up to it's name! I bought this jacket to replace a long sleeve but lightweight jacket I had been wearing to and from the gym because it just wasn't keeping me warm enough in the winter. I wanted something that wasn't bulky and that was small/thin enough to fit in the small cubby/locker but still kept me warm. After much research I purchased this one and am very satisfied w it. It's stylish and form-fitting but also warm. Best of both worlds! I live in Missouri where the weather can be 60 degrees one day and then "feeling like" -25 the next. This works for either because it doesn't make me too hot when it's warmer. I had a coat w cuffs previously and although these are different w thumb holes and want to pull back through the jacket when I take it off, it's not a deal breaker. I'm also 5'7" and about 150 lbs and thought a medium worked well. I went by the size chart. March 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by No Bulk! I was looking for a winter jacket that allowed me movement and no bulk, especially while driving. This jacket does just that! I also love that it fits really well over my bustier chest which is always a huge factor when buying a jacket online! The only con I have with the jacket is I am a short girl and I have a really short torso so the jacket is a little snug at my hips but not enough to not be able to wear it. Overall I am very happy with it. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light Weight Yet Warm Based on how thin/light weight this jacket is, I was afraid it would not keep me warm enough at 30-40 degrees. However, it's been a great find and has kept me comfortable even at a breezy 29 degrees with just a long-sleeve t-shirt underneath and a hat on. I've noticed I sometimes feel a bit "cool" but never cold. This seems to be because the jacket doesn't have a lot of fluff - like down - to hold in warmth. The heat of your body is just reflected back to you from the lining. I've come to trust the jacket and love the fact that it packs into a tiny space in my backpack. I can fit into a Small, but chose a Medium to allow for a fleece pullover underneath, just in case. It breathes well, looks sharp, and the sleeves and neck provide good coverage. Highly recommended.
